*The Flyers hit like 268 posts last night, the power play wasn’t good, Brian Elliott got hurt, and the Flyers lost. Not great, Bob! Recap!

*You know, perhaps the best thing about JVR being back is that some of those stupid shots from the outside might actually go in! [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers have gone 18 whole games with no fights to start this season. Some may see this as a good thing. A step forward. Progress. Some, may not. []

*Oskar Lindblom continues to impress with his playmaking skills, which is really great to see. [NBC Sports Philly]

*One of my personal favorite former Flyers, Dan Carcillo, has done nothing but positive things after his retirement from the NHL, and his consistent drum-beating about the dangers of traumatic brain injury in the face of mockery and dismission has been nothing short if inspiring. [The New York Times]

*Invariably, the goalie headed to the AHL whom we plucked off of the waiver wire has become our best option at backup. What a time. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of goalies....good news! Carter Hart is looking better. [BSH]

*Grading how the offseason moves have worked out so far for the teams that made them. [USA Today]

*Brayden Point scored THREE GOALS IN 91 SECONDS last night. By himself. That’s insane. So we have that to look forward to tomorrow afternoon. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, as is tradition, a new Flyperbole for your Friday! [BSH]
